Abstract
The acceptance and commitment therapy matrix groups for people diagnosed with BPD are a treatment tested in a public mental health institution in Mexico City. These groups were designed to enhance psychological flexibility through discomfort acceptance and personal values awareness and they are organized through the use of a simple tool called the ACT Matrix. This workshop trains the use of the ACT Matrix, a visual diagram that teaches two basic discriminations represented by two axes: The difference between the sensory and inner experience, and the difference between moving toward who and what is important in your life as and opposition to moving away from undesired experiences like anger or guilt. The cross for this axes form four quadrants, “who and what is important”, “how can I move closer to that”, “inner obstacles” and “way to move away from those”. Attendees will learn to use the ACT Matrix as a visual metaphor that organizes analysis of personal and group experiences, guides decision making and problem solving, and enhancing people capacity to choose to do what is important for them in the face in difficult situations and feelings. Finally, attendees will learn the use of the ACT Matrix as a tool to promote group cohesion, self-validation, empathy and collaborative problem solving. The workshop focus in experiential and deliberate practice as methods to learn the use of the ACT Matrix in working with groups of people with severe difficulties for recognizing experiences and define goals in difficult life situations.
